The garage is almost empty. His shop STILL looks bare, because most of the "junk" is up in the loft (neatly organized, might I add!). We now have a dedicated tack space (and I hadn't realized that I have so much horse stuff....granted, I'll collected it over half my life, but still!)! We have dedicated storage! It's....it's a blessing, it really is.
And I need to be more aware of that - we ARE Blessed. I have a good husband, I am able to stay home (most of the time!) and make sure my kids are actually *learning*, I have everything I need - and a lot of what I *want* (which is big - I mean, seriously, who can say that they have most of their wants? It's a Blessing, I'm telling you!).
No, we're not debt-free, but we can afford to keep up with things. (We were debt-free except for the Jeep and 2 houses, but then we bought the shed. It *should* be paid off quickly, if things go the way we've got them mapped out, so...that's OK.) We can afford some "extras" - books are big, for me, and the kids can get "fun" things, too. We're rich in the things that count - and THAT is the biggest Blessing of all!
We're going to go out for lunch (been moving stuff all morning, and I'm tired. In a good way!), then back to emptying out the garage. SG wants to watch some football game that's on....I figure, I'll curl up with a good book and relax.
